Frozen Mudslide Ice Cream Pie
When I was little, we used to go to a restaurant that served boozy milkshakes that looked sooooo good. My mom used to get a Frozen Mudslide and I remember it being served in a tall daiquiri style glass with chocolate sauce dripping down the sides and a tower of whipped cream on top. I wanted a sip so badly but I was always rejected because it was for adults. So not fair.
Now that I’m older I’m making Frozen Mudslides in every form, including this easy Ice Cream Pie! It’s made with your favorite homemade or store-bought ice cream. And the best part, it’s non-alcoholic so the little guys can partake in a piece of ice cream pie, too!
What is a Mudslide?
The Mudslide drink is a dessert cocktail made with vodka, coffee liquor and Irish cream that’s a twist on the White Russian.
It can be served up frozen or like a regular cocktail but it’s way more fun frozen like a boozy milkshake.
Ingredients You Will Need
You can easily blend your ice cream to make this a boozy pie but know it will be a little softer than if you leave it out.
I like to use my homemade coffee ice cream but your favorite store brand will work well, too.

Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans
How do you make a Mudslide Ice Cream Pie?
This Frozen Mudslide Pie doesn’t have any alcohol in it and is made with just a few simple ingredients. The cookie crust is pressed into the pie plate and then coated with hot fudge sauce. Softened coffee ice cream is smoothed over top and then piled high with whipped cream.
Making an ice cream pie in the summer is one of my favorite things to do because it’s easy to prepare in advance for parties and certainly beats dipping ice cream for several guests. I also love this Strawberry Ice Cream Cake. It’s just as easy but takes a bit more time because of all the layers.
Or you can impress your guests with these Ricotta Ice Cream Stuffed Cannoli. They look totally fancy but they’re soooo, sooo easy to make. And the ice cream is light, creamy and totally amazing.
If you’re not really a fan of ice cream but still want to make a no bake dessert this Easy No Bake Chocolate Mousse Pie is completely and totally fabulous. Looking for even MORE FAB recipes….follow along on Instagram!
